About Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs are known as hitch hikers due to their ability to attach to clothing, suitcases, back packs, diaper bags or any type of material. These pests can be picked up any place you visit such as hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, planes, daycares, libraries and other homes. Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed, and their tiny bodies allow them to enter virtually any type of building. They can squeeze in through cracks around doors and windows and often spread from place to place through air ducts. Bed bugs hide in mattresses, some may also hide in a sofa or chair, or behind wall paper or pictures. Thoroughness is the only real way to get rid of Bed Bugs. Every corner and crevice needs to be searched - simply getting rid of an infected mattress will not completely solve the problem.
Problems Caused by Bed Bugs
Bed bugs nourish themselves by piercing the skin with their beaks and draining blood from their hosts. In many cases, bed bug bites leave itchy bumps and rashes on the skin. While bed bugs are not venomous or infectious, scratching the bite areas can break the skin and lead to bacterial infections. Bed bug infestations also result in psychological effects such as anxiety and depression.
If you suspect you may be having an issue with Bed Bugs, do not panic. Do not remove items in or out of infested rooms, including electronics, which harbor pests and spread them throughout the home. Also, do not use foggers of any kind. This could encourage the movement of bugs into the wall voids making remediation more challenging and expensive. We also recommend not hosting visitors while you are battling bed bugs due to high probability of spreading from one home to another.
